Donegal would stay a five-seater constituency, with components of the county remaining within the four-seater Sligo-Roscommon constituency.

“It was not potential to advocate the elimination of the present breach in its county boundary by the Sligo-Roscommon constituency. To have achieved so would have resulted in a variance of greater than 12% which the Fee thought of too excessive,” the report mentioned.

The Fee has really helpful the allocation of two further seats to Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Galway, and Mayo, to deliver the variety of TDs as much as 26. Nevertheless, the change are proposed for the boundaries of 5 of the six constituencies, with the Donegal constituency remaining unchanged.

There could be three 5 seat constituencies – Donegal, Galway West and Mayo; two 4 seat constituencies – Galway East and Sligo-Leitrim; and one 3 seat constituency – Roscommon-Galway.

The Electoral Fee report was created in response to Eire’s rising inhabitants.
